MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS Derby Hat Countdown – 76 of 101

The Derby Hat Countdown continues featuring 101 Derby hats created by MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®!

Our hat for today is the Chelsea Der60-038 medium brim chapeau that is found in Salon 3 of the Derby Hat Collection at


A few days ago I featured a hat named Annabelle in our Derby Hat Countdown. She was created in a palette of black, red and white with a bold polka dot pattern. This new Chelsea design utilizes the same color palette as well as a polka dot print yet in a very different way…

I formed the foundation for our new Chelsea in white dupioni silk with a black and white polka dot underbrim…


I then fashioned a red rose curl out of red satin and silk which I nestled into a black silk organza double bow with a bit of black veiling accent; simplicity and elegance at their best! The result is our new Chelsea of the Red Rose and Polka Dot. Now she is ready for her debut at this year’s Kentucky Derby!
